    My Neighbor's House Is Bought By New People
    They're Doing Heavy Renovation
    They've Cut Down 2 Live Redbud Trees
    The Heart Wood Is An Interesting Red Color
    I've Cut Them Into Usable Chunks And Submerged Them In Water
    I'm Going To Leave Them In The Tank Until After 1st Frost
    It Might Be Interesting, It Might Be A Complete Wash-Out
    Have To See

    I used to fashion or make clocks using various materials like CDs, old vynil records, paper and plastic plates and whatever else I could come across.
    In one case I used a tambourine for a clock.
    I posted a pic of it on flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/fotos_de_cosas/4077968139/in/album-72157613654261421/
    A smaller image of it is posted below.
    Sold many of these on consignment also.
    Would still be doing this if I had the room to do it.
